Guest Post: Top Coats by datyorkLOVES
Today we have the incredibly talented and sweet Dahlia from datyorkLOVES!!! She's sharing with us her favorite topcoat and least favorite. Read on for why she loves one and hates the other :)
Boy oh boy am I nervous! This is my first time posting as a guest on a blog. Before I get started I want to thank Lena for being a great host and I also want to thank and hope I don’t scare away you, Lena Loves Nails followers.
Hello! I’m Dahlia from datyorkLOVES! I’m a ball of nerves and excitement but enough of the small talk and let’s get into it. I’m going to jump into the good stuff…top coats. I started blogging a little over a year ago but I’ve been doing my own nails for YEARS! Throughout the years I have made endless amounts of mistakes and with those mistakes I’ve given birth to many successes, one of them being a top coat. I have found my favorite and least favorite, both of which I will share with you today.
High Gloss Top Coat
(Can be found at WalMart!)
Why this is the ONLY top coat I use.
1. It dries fast and flattens all of your layers. This is HUGE if you do a lot of layering or nail art designs.
2. Perfect formulation!
3. It’s CHEAP, yes I said CHEAP! This 2.5 FL. OZ. bottle is under $5!! Ladies I don’t think it gets better than that.
One of the Cons of this polish is its size which doesn’t always allow it to fit in displays or stands, but that’s not THAT big of a deal, right?
L.A. Colors Color Craze Nail Polish
Why this polish is going bye- bye!
1. Drying time is…well I’m not sure because it takes hours and even when you think it’s dry it’s not. For example when you put lotion on it will smear off your nail. I have noticed this happens in pool water, with soap, and salt water (beach). I am not sure why but I know why I won’t be using it anymore.
2. Sticky, unless you are looking for a polish that will stick to anything clothing, bedding, etc., this is probably one you should skip.
Have you tried either of them? What has your experience been?
Below you will find photos of the two.
